Interaction Information:

Comment Angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) is a zinc-dipeptidyl carboxypeptidase, which contains two similar domains, each possessing a functional active site. Respective involvement of each active site in the degradation of the circulating peptide N-acetyl-seryl-aspartyl-lysyl-proline (AcSDKP), a negative regulator of hematopoietic stem cell proliferation, was studied by using wild-type recombinant ACE and two full-length mutants containing a single functional site. Both the N- and C-active sites of ACE exhibit dipeptidyl activity toward AcSDKP, , the N-active site hydrolyzes the peptide 50 times faster compared with the C-active site.
